Short But To The Puck
Our hockey’s facility at the Northtown Center has been losing hundreds of thousands of dollars every year or at best breaking even. Our Supervisor Barry A. Weinstein is raising the prospect of having private operators run this facility as he’s done with other public facilities during his 7-year tenure.
I strongly support we DON’T turn over this facility to private operators. It’s been run by capable people who care about Amherst. We need to have these people taking care our facilities, not strangers who have no regard for our town.
The group who are running this facility have brought tournaments to our town which enriched our town coffers by thousands of dollars in hotel stays, dinning in Amherst and entertainment.
